Having just returned to shooting after a long gap, I am looking to buy a bow to shoot field rounds: the club I am intending to join is traditionalist (wooden arrows, no metal risers) so I am going to go down the HT route. I started using my old bow (a very old Greenkat T/D 66" target bow, 37# @ 28) but it has just delaminated on the lower limb: I had intended to use it to get back in form before buying a new bow but that's not possible now. For the record, I draw a tad over 26.5 inches, so I suppose I was drawing about 34# on the old bow and was finding that quite acceptable (no shakes on longish holds etc.). My question is,what is the lightest weight one could get away with (at least for a year or so) & have enough power to have a chance at completing a round without too many problems at the longer distances ? Most of the field bows on offer seem to go by 5# increments, so I would be choosing either 35# or 40#. I know I will need to work a lot on my form after a 20 year absence, but equally I would like to have a bow that can do the business. Is 35# (i.e. about 32# at my draw length) enough? Too much? Also, what length bow do people recommend: I see field bows seem to vary between 58" & 64". Thanks in advance.
